Great sound, great band
Had a listen to this show because of "toddonbike"'s review -- and I am delighted. It's a great show, and the sound is superb, at least to my taste. The minimal source description (SBD) belies a superior product. Good stereo separation, minimal background noise, fairly dry room sound, good mix of instruments/vox, nice levels of reverb mixed in from amps/mixing desk (I'm guessing) -- and an appreciative crowd for that ambient touch. It would be nice to know more of this recording's background.
Well worth a download.

hot time on a cold night
I remember driving out to see the boys on this cold January night. Nearly to the end of Long Island, I thought it could be the edge of the Earth. Then there was the glow of a warm, old time tavern. The fire of the soul that burned from the stage was heart warming and spirit lifting.
This recording brings back all those feelings as if I was still sitting at the second table from stage left with my old friends and new aquaintances.
The quality is fantastic and the performance is amazing.
Dont pass up this one. Even if only to play track one over and over again.
